antonioguillem/123RF Keywords Investment strategiesCompanies CPP Investment Board Investors may have an unrealistic understanding of risk and return: survey The biggest challenge advisors may face is managing clients’ emotional reactions However, based on Sportradar’s estimated value of US$2.4 billion, including equity and debt owed, CPPIB’s share of the company would be worth about $936 million.Sportradar founder and CEO Carsten Koerl will retain his ownership share and continue to drive the company’s future development and growth.“Having two new investors with a strong North American footprint is ideal given our increasing focus and expanding operations in the U.S., as the sports industry evolves to meet the expectations of today’s sports fans,” Koerl said in a statement.Among other things, Sportradar works with the NHL and National Basketball Association to distribute data and with Major League Baseball to distribute audio and video content to sport betting operators.It is also a partner with the National Football League and the NASCAR auto racing circuit as well as two major soccer bodies, FIFA and UEFA.Ryan Selwood, head of direct private equity investment at CPPIB, said Koerl was very actively involved in choosing Sportradar’s new partners “and we feel quite fortunate that he chose CPPIB and TCV.”Sportradar is the only company that’s currently working with U.S. sports leagues for official data for betting purposes, he said in a phone interview from New York City.“So the fact that they are able to meet the standards of the major leagues positions them very well to succeed as regulatory environments evolve in the United States,” Selwood added.In addition, Sportradar has been very quick to evolve its products to meet new market niches through a variety of platforms, he said.For example, Sportradar and The Globe and Mail are collaborating on The Forecheck, which forecasts individual NHL game outcomes and playoff probabilities based on statistics that are loaded into the predictor after each game.“So when (newly acquired star centre) John Tavares scores his first goal for the Toronto Maple Leafs, it’s likely that a number of Canadians will be engaging on their mobile devices with that data and some assessment of how that impacts the likely outcome of the game,” Selwood said.Selwood said TCV will invest in Sportradar alongside CPPIB and provide strategic advice based on its experience in technology investments. He added Sportradar has no plans for an initial public offering at this time.“We actually think our investment, as two long-term investment partners, will position it well from a capital and funding perspective … So there’s no current plan to IPO any time soon,” Selwood said.Founded in 1995, TCV provides capital to growth-stage technology companies. Its current active investments included AirBnB, eHarmony, Electronic Arts, and Spotify. It’s also a past investor in Facebook, GoDaddy and LinkedIn.A subsidiary of the Globe and Mail holds an investment in The Canadian Press as part of a joint agreement with Torstar and the parent company of Montreal’s La Presse. Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) is preparing to buy a 39% stake in Sportradar, a global company that distributes data from the National Hockey League and other professional sports for betting purposes.Toronto-based CPPIB has teamed up with equity firm TCV of Menlo Park, Calif., but they haven’t disclosed how much their Sportradar stake will cost.

SERHA Upgrading Equipment and Infrastructure at KPH Health & WellnessMarch 18, 2013 RelatedSERHA Upgrading Equipment and Infrastructure at KPH FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The South East Regional Health Authority (SERHA) has injected funds into the upgrading and improvement of equipment and infrastructure at the Kingston Public Hospital (KPH), to improve the level of service provided to the hundreds of thousands of persons, who seek healthcare at the institution.SERHA Chairman, Lyttleton Shirley, said the minor operating rooms in the Accident and Emergency Department were recently upgraded, while 100 patients have already benefited from the services of the Ambulatory Chemotherapy Unit, which opened in November.[RELATED: Surgical Ward and Burn Unit at Children’s Hospital Refurbished]Additionally, he said, two haemodialysis machines were purchased at a cost of US$100,000.He said this was to support the growing demand for dialysis service, and to ensure that the renal unit functions optimally.“Currently, 93 patients are dialysed twice per week at KPH,” Mr. Shirley said. He was speaking at the handing over of 100 wheelchairs to the hospital by the Rotary Club of St. Andrew on March 14. The donation is valued at $4 million.Last year 55,350 more persons made use of the KPH’s Outpatient Department, than in 2011. A total of 74,000 persons were seen in the Accident and Emergency Department, reflecting a four per cent increase. Approximately 28,000 patients were admitted.SERHA is a statutory body of the Ministry of Health and is one of four Regional Health Authorities formed under the National Health Services Act of 1997, to improve the quality of health care through more efficient use of resources and timely decision making.By Alphea Saunders, JIS Reporter RelatedSERHA Upgrading Equipment and Infrastructure at KPH Advertisements RelatedSERHA Upgrading Equipment and Infrastructure at KPH

Rovio prepares to sell Hatch following lacklustre financialsAngry Birds developer sees annual profit and revenue decline following “best ever year”Haydn TaylorSenior Staff WriterThursday 14th February 2019Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleRovio EntertainmentComing off the back of its “best ever year”, Finnish mobile developer Rovio Entertainment is prepared to sell its controlling share of Hatch Entertainment after posting a decline in revenue and profits for 2018. The mobile game streaming platform which launched in the limited regions late last year is currently 80% owned by Rovio. However, in a statement released today, CEO Kati Levoranta said Rovio is “prepared to reduce its ownership in Hatch Entertainment below 50%” as the company seeks external funding. This month, Hatch announced a partnership with Japanese mobile operator NTT DoCoMo, with the aim of bringing 5G cloud gaming to Japan. Rovio share price took a 9.8% dip this morning following its lacklustre financial results and — despite recovering somewhat — is still marching steadily downwards at the time of writing. Hatch Entrainment played a significant role in a company-wide profit decline of 22%, down to €31.4 million for the year. However, even excluding Hatch from the figures, profits were still down 5.6% to €38.4 million. Annual revenue was down 5.4% to €281.2 million year-on-year, impacted partly by a “large revenue peak” from the Angry Birds Movie in 2017. The games segment saw a 1% bump to €250.4 million, with the company spending 31.4% of gross income on user acquisition which increased last year by 12.9% to €78.6 million. Meanwhile, the two-year content roadmap revealed in May last year has yet to yield results, with brand licensing revenue down 37.4% to €30.8 million. Again, the revenue spike from the Angry Birds Movie was attributed to the comparative decline last year. The Q4 results paint a fairly similar picture with profits declining 49.5% year-on-year to €5.3 million for the period. Overall revenue fared better, but was still down 1.7% year-on-year to €72.7 million.
